If you have been reading tech news regularly, you might know that Microsoft recently released the first build of its Windows 11 operating system. However, not everyone can use this build as it’s only available to those who have joined the Windows Insider Programme.
Although the Windows 11 upgrade is provided for free by Microsoft, your PC still needs to meet the minimum requirements. If your PC doesn’t meet the minimum requirements to run Windows 11, you won’t receive the stable build of the operating system.
TPM Requirement for Windows 11
The one thing that had left lots of people stuck while upgrading their existing operating system to Windows 11 is the requirement for TPM. Actually, Windows 11 needs a TPM 2.0 hardware chip during the installation. Without the TPM 2.0 chip, you can’t install the new operating system.
In case, if you don’t know about the TPM, you need to check out our guide Check if Your PC has TPM for Windows 11. We have discussed TPM on that guide and how to check if your PC has TPM 2.0.
Another thing that users should note that most modern PCs now come with a TPM chip. That means that your device may include a TPM chip, but there’s a possibility that it isn’t enabled by default. So, if TPM is not enabled on your System, the PC health check tool will say, ‘This PC can’t run Windows 11’.
